Charitable giving can benefit both the charities that receive and the companies that give. Giving has often been thought of only as a community service program. Today, companies are leveraging their giving as an aid to recruiting and retention.
Companies can create a charitable giving program that improves employee retention by implementing the following steps:
- Create a "Social Responsibilty Statement" that outlines the kinds of programs that the company would like to support.
- Create a budget.
- Set up a committee of volunteer employees who will select charities to support based on the Social Responsibility Statement.
